Watchmen // Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons.

Watchmen,_issue_1.jpg

Composed during the climax of the Cold War, Moore posits what every soul fears epitomized in Rorschachs’ desperate cry: “One more body amongst foundations makes little different.” What is the value of one life against the many? Can detached and objective science help? What can comprehensive ethics do? How does formative principles play in? Nailing down morality is like getting a bull’s eye 100 yards away with a primitive rifle while on a vehement bull wearing a red suit: it’s not impossible; it’s just hardly possible.
